Guy Fox? No, it's Guy Fawkes!
Remember, remember, the 5th of November is the first verse to a poem commemorating the Gunpowder Plot. This is a remarkable time in history when Guy Fawkes and others attempted to disrupt England by blowing-up King James I, his family, and the House of Parliament on the 5th of November, 1605. The attempt was thwarted and the conspirators were hanged and quartered.
